Wedding Card!

Oh how, couldn't think of a better day to post a wedding card for a challenge ;) How fab was the 'wedding', she looked absolutely stunning and so happy (bless.) And on that note I shall share with you my card for the challenge over at A Passion for Papertrey and you guessed the theme

The White card stock is from my stash, the pink & white ink is SU and everything else is PTI - the quote was a freebie from Nicole Heady to celebrate PTI's 4th anniversary ;)

Enjoy the lovely long weekend peeps :)

A Challenge card.

Oh how gorgeous is this weather? Just hope it lasts a bit longer until the end of Well, quick post from me tonight, feeling pretty tired and been quite busy in work too, so just wanted to share my card with you for the Simply Stampin' Challenge. This week they have quite a simple sketch to follow (not to taxing on the brain) and this is my take on it.

All the products are Stampin'Up! and the buttons were made using Bitty Buttons and Itty Bitty shapes Punch Pack with DSP.

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Easter and Sunshine Too!!!

Hey, hope you're all having a fabulous day, sunshine and chocolate, what more could we ask Well both my boys are happy with their finds this morning, it has been known for Easter Bunny not to leave the exact right egg before today (whoops!)

Just thought I'd share this milk carton I made to house some chocolate yumminess for my nephew, he's nearly 16 by the still loves his chocolate though, especially the Lindt eggs!

The cardstock is all SU but the dies are Sizzix and the stamp is retired I'm afraid, which is a shame because it's such a fabulous stamp.

Anyways, enjoy the rest of your day :)

Mums Birthday!

Hello strangers, well at least I am I think there is a time thief doing the rounds, where is it going I ask myself! Anyway, last week was my mums birthday, not that she was here mind, no, she was spoiling herself in New York doing a spot of shopping and she certainly did that (wink.) This is the card I made for her though, already for her return.

I've used those gorgeous papers, elegant soiree with the co-ordinating cardstock, baja breeze, soft suede and very vanilla and of course that daisy die has sneaked in again ;) I do love it! The new seam binding ribbon is just lush to use, just hope they bring some more colours in the new catalogue next October :) and the stamp I have used is a 'Dolly Mamas' they are so humerous, just love them.

Sorry for the quick post but it's getting a bit late now and no doubt my youngest will be up at the crack of dawn to see if the 'Easter Bunny' has been ;)

Have a lovely Easter Sunday and lets hope the sun comes out for the bank holiday!

Beautiful Weekend and a Teenager!

Well yesterday my baby No.1 turned 13! OMG, just can't believe where the years have disappeared to. I remember everything about his birth like it was yesterday and although the end result was a beautiful bundle which I totally adored and always will, the birth it's self has to be the worst thing I have ever been through. But yesterday we had a lovely day at splash world with our 2 boys and my nephew and then out for a Chinese in the evening with Nan & Grandad :)
So if that wasn't enough, the weather being so glorious today, we've ended this special weekend with a barbecue, no doubt it will rain but hey, what an excuse to craft (wink!)

Anyway onto the cards, now I don't know about anyone else but I am guilty of making a card I like but never ever making it again. So this time I broke the habit of a life time and made 3 cards all the same but in different colour schemes.

Border punch is Martha Stewart and card candy (flower centres) is craftwork cards, everything else is Stampin'Up! and available to order from me.

Hope you like them and thanks for looking.

Simply Stampin' Challenge

I'm so excited about this challenge blog as it will 'make' me put all those SU goodies to better I know we are all guilty of this (having too much stash!)

So this is my card I made using the new daisy die from the fabulous new mini catalogue (and if you haven't already just click on the image in my sidebar and browse all the yummy goodies available.)
All the products are SU although I think the DSP is now retired but it has been replaced with another scrumy paper in the same colour available in the Neutrals DSP 12x12 Pattern Stack, it contains 40 sheets, 2 of each colour for just £15.50 and trust me they are delish!

Ok, the card

Well it truly was a 'bliss' set to work with but alas, it has been retired, never to be sold again :( For those of you lucky enough to have earned this fabulous set you will never be disappointed with the endless possibilities. This card was inspired from a very pretty card I found whilst blog hopping and was created by the lovely Dawn Wicks.

Matching gift tag too, I'm into tags at the moment :)

Well that's all from me today, off to visit my mum now with the boys, hope you're having better weather than we are here in Liverpool :(
